Best Places to Grab Brunch in Honolulu

After a night on the town, brunch in Honolulu is a must.

While the Sunday morning feast may be considered more of an American tradition, Hawaii has adopted the ritual and made it its own.

Deciding where to have brunch in Honolulu can be difficult, since the city is bursting with brunch spots. Weekends are especially overwhelming – the city comes alive with mimosas and pancakes every Sunday.

From enormous pancake challenges to exotic buffet brunches, here is our guide to finding the best brunch in Honolulu:



Level Three, 1450 Ala Moana Blvd, Honolulu
Mariposa may be a little on the pricey side, but it does offer a brunch menu to die for and some incredible ocean views.

Choose from the restaurant’s “brunch menu”, which is available from 11am to 3pm, and offers eggs and other delicious options. It’s a very popular spot on Sunday brunch day, so may sure you reserve a spot…although parking is free.

Favorite brunch options include its tasty eggs benedict and Southwestern omelet.



The Kahala Hotel & Resort, 5000 Kahala Ave, Honolulu
The brunch at Hoku‘s takes the tradition to another level.

Brunch for one person, between 10:30 am and 2 pm, may set you back around $55, but there is no way that you won’t be sent up to brunch heaven immediately afterward. The buffet includes every type of seafood you can imagine, such as lobster, oysters, mussels, and crab.

You can also help yourself to delicious sushi rolls and an array of sweet desserts, which does include a chocolate fountain.

Hau Tree Lanai


2863 Kalakaua Ave, Honolulu
The beautiful outdoor setting of Hau Tree Lanai is a delightful place to enjoy a tasty brunch.

Sample some of the restaurant’s fine local fish, meat and vegetarian dishes. Famous for its eggs benedict and Hawaiian-style poi pancakes, the restaurant has stunning beachfront views underneath the famous Hau trees where author Robert Louis Stevenson famously wrote.0

However, breakfast is only served until 10:45 am so it’s recommended that you book in advance.



Halekulani, 2199 Kalia Road, Honolulu
If you can get a reservation at Orchids – you sometimes have to wait weeks for an opening – then you are in for an exclusive and special brunch occasion.

Orchids offers a very extensive brunch buffet from 9.30am until 2pm and the event is a great spot for the whole family, with a designated children’s brunch area for the little ones.

The menu is extensive – you can expect fresh seafood, kobe beef and suckling pig, but the dessert table wins the trophy for best platter.

The selection includes pastries, cheesecakes, pies, and chocolate on everything – so save some room.

Mac 24/7


Hilton Waikiki Prince Kuhio Hotel, 2500 Kuhio Ave, Honolulu
Mac 24/7 may not have the glamour and sophistication of the other brunch spots on this list, but it sure does brunch well.

Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, Mac 24/7 serves up brunch classics, such as waffles with fried chicken and pancakes five ways, as well as Hawaiian-style options, such as Kalua pork eggs benedict.

It’s also famous for its Mac Daddy Pancake Challenge, which was featured on TV show Man Vs Food and includes three 14-inch pancakes, which must be eaten within 90 minutes.

Winners receive a free meal, a t-shirt, and a photo on the wall of fame and website.
